I quickly thought I should walk one mile for each person that I want to honor. I had no idea that I could really think of 30 people with whom I share this battlefield. It's almost horrifying to know that I could write out a list of 30 in a very short amount of time. Oh, how my heart wants for there to be a cure and quickly so that the next generation of young girls and women will find it quite difficult to name 3 let alone 30 women who have breast cancer.
In a few weeks, I will walk side-by-side with survivors and friends/families of survivors in the Atlanta 2 day walk sponsored by It's The Journey. I am looking forward to it for many reasons. I registerested for this race in October 2013 ... smack dead in the middle or toward the end of my chemo therapy. Funny how, back then, I thought walking 30 miles would be a good idea when I could hardly walk one.....
a prime example of walking in HOPE and by FAITH.
In a few weeks, I will join hundreds of other walkers who will be walking 30 miles with their own heroes in mind. I will walk in full rememberance of my grandmother, Charlene Wharton and in honor of my pinkie sisters with whom I take great pride and honor in knowing.
I do not take any of this lightly or for granted because I also remember what my life was like a year ago. My heart is heavy for those who I know are suffering - who continue to fight!
My team "Simply The Breast" is comprised of 2 other survivors. We're 12 strong. We've raised over $9,000 heading to $10,000.
One day~I hope cancer is not only curable but eradicated! Hugs & Love, CC
